More of my garden Snowdrops.
Lit by daylight & finished in Photoshop.

A little softer than my 'norm' with a touch of added noise.

I found these quite difficult to photograph as the petals are so very reflective.I used a piece of tracing paper,strategically placed, to hold back some of the light & retain detail in the petals & to reduce highlights on the little glass vase.

Thanks for taking the time to look/comment.

Oh yes,there are hundreds & hundreds just across the way from me on the edge of a meadow but they look prettier where they are & it's so naughty to collect from the wild.

Just gorgeous. It is heartening to know that even you find white flowers and glass a challenge Blush. Very best wishes, Fiona

These are just so lovely, thanks for the tips on defusing the light. Its the 'finishing off on Photoshop' that I would struggle with!
